{Gluten-Free} Hot Milk-Matcha Bundt with Chocolate Silk Sauce #PeoplehoodoftheTravelingSwirlyPan

Remember that I have Dorothy (she's a bundt pan) and Toto (he's a journal) visiting from the Peoplehood of the Traveling Swirly Pan? You can read more about that - and see my first recipe with Dorothy - here when I made a Gluten-free Bourbon Gingerbread with Prickly Pear Lemon Curd.

My second adventure was a complete and total flop. I tried to make a savory Mexican egg bake and it stuck miserably. It tasted great, but it was beyond ugly. So, I won't be sharing that recipe on the blog or sharing it with the #PeoplehoodoftheTravelingSwirlyPan. Flops happen...and you move on, right?

So, for our Fathers' Day dessert, I decided to make Jake a Hot Milk-Matcha Bundt with Chocolate Silk Sauce. My Love, thanks for being the fun parent...our boys need one!

I am guessing that my luck with unmolding the gingerbread was a total fluke because my third attempt with Dorothy also resulted in stuck cake. Ugh. 

Thank goodness for chocolate sauce!! The dessert was amazingly delicious. It was just ugly. Again.

  • 1 C butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 C milk
  • 1 C gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 C sweet white rice flour
  • 1 C ground almonds
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 2 T matcha green tea powder
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 10 oz semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 T butter

Butter and flour the baking dish. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine milk and butter in a saucepan and cook over low heat until the butter is completely melted. Remove from the heat. Place all of the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs to break them up.

Mix in the extract, then the milk mixture. Whisk until just moistened. Pour into prepared dish and bake till the cake is well-risen, smooth, a deep golden brown, and firm to the touch - approximately 50 minutes. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes. Loosen the cake from the pan and invert onto a cooling rack.

Combine the cream and sugar and heat it over medium heat. Just before it boils, remove the pan from the heat, add the chocolate and butter, stirring till it's completely melted. Cool slightly, then whisk. This sauce is best served warm.

Slice bundt and drizzle with sauce. Serve immediately.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
